The latest development of materials and technology for building smart chemical sensors has been presented. Different kinds of chemical sensors working on the principle of chemical and physical transductions have been individually discussed. The sensor mechanism in each case of detection of inorganic and organic vapors has been indicated. The merits and demerits of different materials and sensors structures have been mentioned. Finally the strategic applications of some innovative chemical sensors have been clearly cited.
